Terrorism is the crucial issue which changed the concept of security after 9/11 attacks in Southeast Asia. Terrorism became the most significant issue in the politics of the region where the two extremist groups; the Malaysian Militant Group (KMM) in Malaysia and the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) in Indonesia were active. These two groups had been responsible for the bombing and attacks on western interests in the respective countries. This study will address the involvement and the connections of these two groups in the terrorism activities in the Southeast Asia as well as connections with international terrorism web. Furthermore, it studies the factors which led to the involvement of these groups in violent activities. The paper suggests the practical method to counter the threats of terrorism and militant ideology in KMM and JI’s movements in Southeast Asia.
